Summer Day Camp

Located on 500 acres of rolling prairie filled with bubbling streams and nature paths begging to be explored, Living History Farms’ outdoor day camp setting provides a fun and unique way for children entering kindergarten through 8th grade to experience day-to-day farm and town life as it was in the past.

Kids connect to history, science, and nature through fun and engaging outdoor experiences, responsible use of resources (recycling), games, crafts, and visits to Living History Farms’ historic sites. The fun and learning never stops at Living History Farms’ Summer Day Camp!
